This light copper single hop India Pale Ale is brewed only with the Fuggles hops. It has a smooth, dry, and crisp flavor with floral aroma and apple plum palate.

You know what would've been fun? To try this back to back with Anchor Liberty, which I understand is made only with Cascade hops. Oh well. Grapefruit aroma, floral and earthy, almost chalky.

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - MAR 18, 2003
Pours a clear, light copper color with a small, off-white head that lingers a while. It has a nice, fruity aroma of hops with a touch of malts and apples. Medium body with medium carbonation, the flavor is all Fuggles hops, bitter up front more so than in the finish. A touch of malty sweetness lingers behind the hops. An interesting IPA, the use of only Fuggle hops imparts a distinct flavor and bitterness to the brew.

This is a clean beer that's just a bit heavy on body. Fuggles is a great hop but more varieties would've increased this beer's complexity.

HighGravity (926) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 6, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 11, 2003 (Best by 7/03) More of a ringwood nose than a hop nose. The beer did pour nicely and it looks marvelous in the glass. The palate is malty, spicy, and ringwood yeasty. The finish is quick and spicy. I find this beer to be very middle of the road.

Terminus (3146) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - MAR 3, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2005 Cask-RAF-2/28/03-This is definately not a brew that im very into. This is a very good replica of an English IPA. Im a hophead, so this isn’t my type of brew, so this rating may be far to low to give it fair chance, but we have our opinions, dont we? rerate-bottle-pours clear orange with a huge foamy white head that left good lacing. metallic earthy hop aroma with faint notes of pinecones. flavros are bitter with a dry fuggles kick with lingering earthy bitterness with undertones of mint. This is pretty good for this englisb style ipa. Even though it only rates a 3.3 from me, this would make a great session ale.

Mostly cleat, light amber/orange with a nice big bubbled, soapy head and decent lace. Nose if full of spicy fuggles, malt, hints of wood and butter. Buttery malt sweetness with tons of fuggle bitterness that sticks with you many minuted after. A well balanced IPA. Very enjoyable and one I would go back to.

Light copper body, small white head, mild nose with a bit of sweetness and hints of fruit. Body is floral and slightly fruity. Good bitterness in the finish. Nicely done.

red-orange colour, fine head, deep cane sugar aroma with notes of berries and macaroon, full-bodied, pricking with a dry bitter finish

WabashMan (1007) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - FEB 10, 2003
Nice medium copper color and light nose start this one. Flavor is slightly bitter and dry, not too hoppy, and interesting. It's nice but, in my opinion, lacks some complexity to raise it ot the level of really good IPAs. Nice, overall, though.

JMerritt (1744) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - FEB 1, 2003
Clear amber color, white head that is mostly diminishing but leaves decent lacing. Aroma is very floral and stong of hops. Initial flavor: hops begin to invade, getting stronger and stronger, until finally ... they disappear into malt and then nothingness. Finish is lightly hoppy, but mostly watery. Not nearly as hoppy as I was expecting, so I have to admit that I was slightly disappointed. By no means is this a bad beer, but as an IPA, it is similar to a very short roller coaster ride. The thrill is there, but the stand in line was too long and the ride was over too quickly .
